Dexter government wants new gambling study


Nova Scotia’s NDP government wants a new study on the socio-economic impacts of gambling, after scuttling such a study in 2009.

Communities, Culture, and Heritage Minister Dave Wilson, responsible for Part I of the Gaming Control Act, said this morning that the work will be done through the Nova Scotia Health Research Foundation, which he said is arm’s-length from government.

Wilson couldn’t say when the study would start or finish. He said there’s now a transition underway with Gambling Awareness Nova Scotia being folded into that organization.

He said the study will examine gambling-related suicides.
